Book Description

12 July 2012 0273758144 978-0273758143 2

"The language is informal, colloquial and very friendly, which makes even the most complicated subject easy to read and understand.  It’s so clear and unintimidating - a brilliant book which I would absolutely recommend to my students" - Dr Yamni Nigam, Senior Lecturer, Swansea University

Anatomy and Physiology for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals, second edition, now including access to the online homework system MasteringA&P, is the most comprehensive, yet accessible, introduction to anatomy and physiology available today. Designed specifically for students of nursing and allied healthcare (including Paramedics, Physios, Occupational Therapists, complimentary medicine and many more), this textbook is the perfect companion while studying at college, university and beyond.

With an applied, full colour visual approach, this best selling book covers the structure and functions of the human body in detail. Crucially, Clinical applications features throughout the text show the relevance of that knowledge in clinical practice and help to close the theory/practice gap.

Each new copy of the book comes with a personal access code to MasteringA&P, the online homework and tutorial system. Mastering is used by over 1,000,000 students worldwide, and is proven to improve exam results.

Students register to watch step-by-step animations, complete labelling exercises, download audio/visual tutorials, interact with lab simulations, solve realistic case studies, and get immediate personalised feedback based on the answers they give so they learn quickly from their mistakes.

"It got me to think more about A&P rather than just listening," - Jade Hill, Student, University of East Anglia

“It allows you to learn at your speed,” - John Redmond, Student, Anglia Ruskin University

"Definitely I feel that I have gained more from this than a lecture," - Marea Baber, Student, University of East Anglia

MasteringA&P also contains your eText copy of this book, which enables students to easily search for terms, make notes and add highlights as they go along. Lecturers can also make notes and share these with students.

Visit www.masteringaandp.com to find out how other lecturers are benefiting from integrating the online tools in their teaching. For lecturer access, please contact your Academic Consultant.

4.0 out of 5 stars Biology made easy 7 May 2013
By Cutebat
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think this book is a perfect one for getting to know your subject. It breaks down all the anatomy into easy to read chunks. It has little quizzes at the ends of each chapter which I feel helps to engage the reader and there are loads of colourful diagrams. I brought this half way through the year and kicked myself for not buying it before then because it really makes life a lot easier!

Hi,

I have just received my copy of this book and unfortunately it has a crease running through several pages. It looks like an error has occurred during the binding process. I cannot find a way of contacting you through private message so if someone could get in contact with me to arrange a replacement that would be great.

Thanks,

Claire

Love this book. In my first year of nursing and it really really helped. It breaks things down so simply and makes things easy to understand and apply. The constant mcqs throughout the book are so helpful, especially during revision. Would highly recommend this book.
